Eviction Defense Project: Pro-bono legal representation for families in eviction cases in Milwaukee small claims court. In addition to legal representation, the Eviction Defense Project (EDP) advises tenants who only receive a notice terminating tenancy with no case filed, as well as assisting tenants with post-judgement matters, such as emergency stays of already ordered writs of eviction or motions to clarify CCAP records. (Safe & Stable Homes)

Road to Opportunity Project: Legal Action of Wisconsin attorneys will provide advice and legal representation to people seeking pardons, expungements, and citation defense assistance to remove barriers to family sustaining legal action employment. The Road to Opportunity Project also seeks to improve the legal systems for clients who were involved with the justice systems. Road to Opportunity Project attorneys are some of the only attorneys who specialize in municipal court litigation, and they are often the only attorneys seeking to enforce poverty protections in municipal court.
